antique sand cast - Robert E. Lee DOORSTOP

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Patterned after the well-known wartime photo of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee taken in the Richmond, Virginia studio of Vannerson & Jones, this cast iron doorstop is reminiscent of the turn of the century casting by the John Wright Co. (founded in the 1880’s) yet a close examination of this piece reveals a crudeness with pronounced cast marks not found with the finer Wright Co. examples. We believe this piece is either an early pre-production example of the John Wright, Lee doorstop or a much earlier sand casting taken from the 1863 Richmond pose and rendered by an entirely different foundry. Standing approximately 7 ˝ inches the figure offers a natural age patina as it was acquired in a Virginia estate some twenty years past. Upon the closest examination, a few tiny flex of black enamel show that the piece was originally painted. A bit of an enigma but whether a very early pre-production casting by John Wright or (wouldn’t we like to think so) a war time casting inspired by the Richmond photographer’s image of General Lee, this old cast iron doorstop is deserving of a new home as we clear away some of our many years accumulation. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
